A US traffic officer has been filmed dancing while directing traffic breaking in Charlotte, North Carolina, during the three-day Democratic National Convention.

It was reported that the policeman was part of a group of SWAT officers who were appointed as temporary traffic marshals, specifically for the party meeting.

Traffic has been busy in Charlotte since the start of the convention on Tuesday. The event will end tonight when Obama delivers his speech, formally accepting the Democratic nomination.
